A cartoon of a boy shouting for his friend to come over to see his new Christmas present; a magic lantern, an early slide viewer which included fun pictures. The cartoon was drawn by Clare Briggs for the book "Oh Skin-nay! The Days of Real Sport" in 1913. The book was written by poet Wilbur D. Nesbit and portrays a year in the life of small-town America through the eyes of the twelve-year-old boy - wood gathering, sleigh rides, games of post office, swimming holes, and sandlot ball games.
